We just spent 2 terrific days with Jean. First day we did the Get to Know Bangkok tour; second day we went outside the city to visit a lotus farm, orchard, and orchid farm, all mixed in with several boat rides and a Tuk Tuk ride. Our time at the sights was managed efficiently and well-worth seeing. Jean explained a lot about Thai history, culture, and day-to-day life. She's bright, educated, funny, and very personable. I'd highly recommend her. Her car is immaculate and she's a great driver, too!
